Types of Personal Injuries


Everyday, injuries occur on a wide scale basis, often times not at the fault of the injured. The ability to file personal injury claims allows victims hurt from negligence or harmful acts by another to recover damages suffered that can sometimes leave a person with debilitating injuries and a permanently altered life.

Personal injury lawsuits are filed because of auto accidents and other vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, products liability, dangerous drugs, airplane accidents, wrongful deaths and other personal injuries. Accidents do occur, and over time laws and safety regulations have been created so that exposure to potentially deadly or harmful events could be reduced to protect citizens. Since it is impossible to prevent all accidents from occurring, victims of personal injury have rights supported by government to file claims to recover damages suffered.

Instead, political groups and corporate interests have been campaigning to reduce consumer rights by proposing, as well as passing laws capping jury awards. Jury awards allow ordinary citizens to impose damages against the group(s) responsible for the personal injury, but capping damage awards takes away power from citizens and places it in the hands of powerful corporations, groups and government. The ability to seek damages though a personal injury case takes steps to further protect consumers from negligent acts and allows citizens to exercise their individual freedoms and victim rights.

Most personal injury cases will fall into one of the following categories:
